    Sweet chilli dipping sauce

    You can tailor this brilliant sauce to your taste: add less sugar, ramp up the chilli or simmer till it’s sticky and jammy. It takes no time and keeps in the fridge for up to 5 days.

    1 red chilli, chopped (deseeded, if liked)

    50g caster sugar

    3 tbsp white wine vinegar
